Hi
If you get a blinking car icon with an "X" ..that means Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick....
" try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer" and I am sure it will help.
all the best..
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Fuel shut off switch location on a 74 alfa romeo spider 200


Does the fuel pump run? The inertia switch, if tripped will prevent the fuel pump from running. If the pump runs but the car doesn't start than it's likely a problem with the fuel pressure regulator or the bypass internal to the pump.

My 156 sportswagon is burning fuel badly i put 2 gallons in and only got 31 miles for this i can hear an air leak coming from top of engine would this be a likley cause for such poor fuel consumption it's...


an air leak would weaken the mix of fuel to air so giving you better fuel efficiency but a poor power output.
was my last answer not to your liking, re **** fuel consumption on all fiat/alpha cars.but it is true, ask any owner........14.7 average mpg.......£205 road tax.....(tax it for a year and quadruple its value...)

To code engine immobiliser on alfa romeo 147


(1) look behind fuse box (2 x 10mm bolts then ease it downwards), look for black box with green sticker behind fusebox, unplug and replug wires (white plugs) several times, they suffer from corroded connections. (2) wiggle wires around that box and fuse-box. (3) take it to Alfa dealer for check-up, if parts and re-code needed usually around £250.
